|The previous owners of our house were quite the horticulturist by hobby. One of the best things they left behind for us (besides the riding mower) is a map of all of the plantings around the property. The first spring we experienced in the house was one blooming surprise after another. |
Elizabeth and Jonah had planted daffodils, tulips and iris in the same bed. So first thing in the spring the daffodils peek through and they gracefully give way to the tulips which bow out just in time for the iris.
Admittedly the beds got away from us for a while, but since our landscaping fairy has been making weekly visits, things are starting to look under control again.
What? You don't have a landscape fairy? Keep some snacks, a friendly dog, and a nice relaxing place to ponder life or take a nap and see what happens. If that doesn't work, I'll give you my mom's number.

|Garlic! It was starting to sprout in the window sill so I stuck it in soil.|
|Signs of life from a Hibiscus that resembled a stick for a long time. I'm pretty excited about it.|
